New to DVD this week

The Christopher Nolan Blu-ray Collection (Warner) We can't think of a better way to pump ourselves up for the upcoming Dark Knight Rises than with this hefty Blu-ray box set featuring all but one of the movies made by this generation's best director. The excellent magician-movie mind-fuck The Prestige is MIA, but everything else is here: 2000's twisty-narrative breakthrough Memento, the oft-overlooked Insomnia, the dream-tripping Inception, and, of course, the two Batman films that redefined the concept of comic-book movies. Hours of commentaries, production features, and deleted scenes should keep you busy until the Dark Knight rises again in three weeks.

The Artist (Sony) —If you haven't seen this year's Oscar winner for Best Picture, here's your chance to marvel at one of the best movies of 2011, a tribute to silent-screen cinema that hits all the right notes without uttering a single word until the end.

Deliverance (Warner) — The movie that gave backwoods hillbillies a bad name celebrates its 40th anniversary with a special Blu-ray book package that includes a bunch of behind-the-scenes info, including new interviews with the cast.

The 39 Steps (Criterion) — Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 movie about a man, a spy, and a misunderstanding — a foreshadowing of sorts to Hitch's classic North by Northwest – makes its Blu-ray debut. Scholarly extras give it historical heft.
